home 63 big spending democrats. americans said we do not want more spending, we want dramatic cuts in size and scope and focus of washington d.c. and promised cuts, minuscule when we have a deficit in the trillions of dollars in year and 253 million dollars. it's just really, it's weak tea. >> sorry to jump in. but it really is obama who is the person who is holding it up at this point. and the congressional republicans that are present on this issue for in the caving in and giving a deal up already to this point. so, i think saying that they're ignoring us isn't, isn't true because they really are out there, fighting for the best deal possible. >> were you comfortable with 253 million dollars of cuts this year when they promised 100 billion. >> 253 million dollar cuts, in exchange for that one continuing resolution. as long as they get to the 100 billion over the course of the entire year, i would support what they're doing and they knew that the debt ceiling debate was still going to go on and more cuts from here and working to do just that and i think they deserve credit. >> do
for her. she was born in 19 -- none of your business. a big buzz about a gall up poll showing that president obama would be defeated by a generic republican by 8 points and leads any of the spectacular candidates that he is paired against. what does this mean? franklyy absolutely nothing. a poll in this point in time is where they are today and not in 15 months. voters will automatically vote democrat and some automatically vote republican. the election is going to be decided by independent voters in the middle, and they are a long way from making up their mines on the next election. they are struggling whether or not they are having a next paycheck. while i enjoy a good game of politics as much as the next guy, there is a time to campaign and then there is a time to govern. president and members of congress from both parties have had their fun politicing the debt ceiling and now time to govern and resolve it. i don't think the world will face armageddon over failure to set the debt limit. there would be affects. you wouldn't be able to visit the national parks and coon get a
the unfolding of the debt crisis deal. you know, the big difference between campaigning and governing is simple. in a campaign it is your message and platform 100 percent. you frame the entire message and drive the points that you think are important and ignore the things you don't about and understand. the result of the campaign you are elected, you have to shift gear to governing mode. that is like killing a deer in the wood and cooking it in the kitchen. tools that you use to kill the deer are . different than the ones you cook and serve it with. folks have campaigned but can't trannsition from the woods or kitchen n a campaign there is no recognition that the other candidates might have ideas that are better or at least more palatable than your own. it is political suicide to open a campaign debate by saying my opponent has a better idea on improving schools than i do. no, candidates have an answer and a plan to everything. if you don't, you still do. being a candidate is a practice scrimmage. governorship is where everyone is trying to win and no one wants to lose. no one holds the office
and knew they were not missing. >> and keeping my faith that they're going to be okay. >> but one big difference, the jury in the susan smith trial found her guilty and sentenced her to life in prison. joining me is the prosecutor from that trial, tommy pope, since that time, tommy is now a member of the south carolina house of representatives. tommy, thank you for joining me today and i want to first get a reaction to what professor dershowitz said regarding celebrating. i thought it was poignant that as a defense attorney he he said he did not celebrate even when he got acquittal. >> i think you know, as a prosecutor and attorney you're human, but by the same token we deal in tragedy and so, would i be disappointed if i was on the case and didn't turn out, absolutely. happy or excited if it did turn out, but it's really about justice. there was life lost, the media coverage thing, we're kind of numb to it. you alluded to earlier, nobody understands about seeking death and what that really means. we get kind of comfortable with it, but the truth is we're dealing with lives and we're
in stature, but big on talent. back by popular demand. the sleepy band banjo boys. ladies and gentlemen, governor mike huckabee. [applause]. [applause]. >> thank you, thank you very much. great audience. welcome to huckabee from the fox news studios in new york city. well, some nut group called freedom from religion has their antenna up because the governor of texas is calling for a day of prayer. now, even though taxpayers aren't paying for any of it, this group is suing to stop it. look, it's one thing to express some cynicism as to whether the timing for a highly public publicized prayer event that the governor wants to run for president. i can't understand why people who don't believe in god are so afraid of it. and saying that prayer is a meaningless and worthless exercise in futility. that'd keep them busy doing something harmless, instead of passing out literature and screaming for pedestrians to repent. let me say that i plan to really mess them up. i'm going to pray for them. they need the prayers, and i need the practice. [laughter] >> well, another story this week, gave me
faith they will be okay. >> but one big difference. the jury in the susan smith trial found her guilty and sentenced her to life in prison. joining me is the prosecutor from the trial tommy pope. he is now a member of the south carolina house of representatives. thank you for joining me today. i want a reaction to what the professor celebrate. it was poignant as a defense attorney he did not celebrate even when he got an acquittal. >> as a prosecutor and attorney you are human and by the same token we deal in tragedy and would i disappointed on the case and didn't turn out absolutely. would i be excite federal it did turn out. it is really about justice. there is a life lost in the case and the media coverage saying and we are numb to it. about really no body understands about seeking death and what that means. we get comfortable with it, but the truth is, we are deal lives and serious situations. >> in the case was susan smith you sought the death penalty and she got life without paroll. >> life with parole. >>im sorry, she has a potential of parole. >> about 10 more years and we'll s
migraine headaches and takes medication for them. boy, that is a big story. that is nonsense that one has to endure running for president. it fries my bacon that the worse criticism of michelle bachmann gets headaches. good grief the presidency is a headache. you can see she has unfailing energy and hardly seems incapacitated . i get so tired of the saint was journalism demanding to see the medical records of a female presidential candidate because i staffer who couldn't keep up with them. that is losing one headache and only people i have less use for with someone who does that to a former boss is the gum shoe reporter who usually smells a story. what he usually smells is his own self. brian left on the stage to confront and demand that she answer his questions and got upset when the staffers treated him like the incontract jerk he can be. being on the receiving end of his brand of reporting, i realized that he is less the cause of a headache for michelle bachmann and more a pain in the other end of one's anatomy. reporters have a right to ask questions but not demand answers to question
